Hi I'm Bryce

I love listening to movie soundtracks while I make stuff and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was homeschooled as a kid (but went to high school). I learned piano from my grandma and have played the cello and French horn for a few years now. I also discovered an interest for computer animation which helped me chose my major when I went to college studying industrial design. I'm still learning how to find my way through life and make those key decisions that will determine my future.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a very religious family and I feel that I have taken lots of things for granted. Moving out and experiencing college life gave me lots of responsibility and I realized I had to make a decision: am I going to keep living the way I was raised? After some memorable moments on my knees I have done my best to live up to my ideals and I love life!

How I live my faith

It's an ongoing journey. I love being able to rely on God through the good and bad times, I never feel abandoned so long as I remember him. I do my best to read the scriptures daily, attend church services weekly, and pray often during the day. College life does keep me busy but there's always time for the Lord.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Bryce
It's a 531 page book which began about 2600 years ago! It is a thousand year history starting with a family who left Jerusalem (before it was destroyed) and sailed to the Americas. God still remembered these people and had prophets foretell the coming of Jesus Christ. After Christ was crucified and resurrected he visited the people in the Americas and taught them exactly what he taught in the Bible in Jerusalem. Generations later, the people became wicked and turned from Christ leaving the Book of Mormon as the record of their amazing story. Show more Show less

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Bryce
No! We want to help everyone! Don't hesitate to accept any sort of service from missionaries or members!  We really just want to help! Show more Show less

What are Mormon church services like? Are visitors allowed at church meetings? Can I attend church?

Bryce
It's a 3 hour spiritual recharge broken into three parts. First we all meet together and take the sacrament which is really the whole reason we meet. The second hour we break into study groups going over different topics or books of scripture. During the third hour we all split into specific organizations (primary for the kids, young men or young women groups, relief society for the women, and priesthood for the men) where we discuss how we can each apply gospel principles in our lives and specific needs. We welcome everyone and would love to have you worship and learn with us! Be sure to ask any member for help or directions, we love answering questions. Show more Show less

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

Bryce
Mormon was one of the last prophets of an ancient American civilization. He compiled the records of over a thousand years into a single book the Book of Mormon. Over a thousand years after it was written the Lord gave us this book with a promise that it was his way of proving that the church had been restored. Since our church is the only group to have and believe in the Book of Mormon we have been nick-named “Mormon”. You may even hear members refer to themselves as “Mormons” at times though our true and prefered name is “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints”. Show more Show less
